The Art Of “Happy Little Waterfalls” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is our 31st year of doing business! As you know we design and build Custom Water Features. I tell people all the time that  “Waterfalls are my business, and business is good”! So true 😊 Waterfalls are also my Art. Building waterfalls is so much more than just arranging stones and boulders… You have to have an Artists eye 👁 to build something that resonates. A feature that makes you stop and just, absorb all the elements. When you pull that off, in my opinion, you have become an artist… 

People tell me I’m an artist all the time. So I’m embracing it! Bob Ross hair and all! I ❤️ My Art! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The old saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”…  My new saying is going to be, 

“I don’t work, I create Happy Little Waterfalls” 😊 Boom 💥 

I ❤️ My Job! I ❤️ My Crew! And – I ❤️ My Art! 

Thanks for all your support the last 31 years! ❤️

Have a Great Day!

We built this Waterfall & Stream feature to have a feeling of Nature & ‘Zen’ as our main goals. It turned out to be a unique Water Feature with great sound & a Zen feel.
PS: The owners LOVE it! Success!

I hope this short video will bring a little ‘Zen’ to your Monday Morning too!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is a very special Waterfall that was just turned on for the 1st time for a test run. You will see more of this one as a finished product soon. We designed this one to take advantage of a natural spring fed pool and stone formation. It really looks and feels “Natural”,  because much of it is 😊 I hope you get the same feeling of Zen that I do from this short video… You even hear the guys laughing in the background at the success of this beautiful Waterfall!

Here’s a picture looking across the Pond of this beautiful feature…

The sound and feeling of this Waterfall is pure Zen ❤️

Another week has begun! Enjoy!
